The owner of toy and novelty gift chain Hawkin's Bazaar brand has gone into administration.

The Tobar Group employs 380 staff across a network of 65 stores and also sells online and over the phone.

The administrators said they would be working to try and protect jobs.

Hawkin's Bazaar customers owning gift vouchers may still exchange these for goods.
